TOKYO -- Policy wonks from three continents are uniting to send U.S. President-elect Joe Biden a message, offering a set of proposals on trade designed to reverse the protectionism promoted by outgoing President Donald Trump.

Richard Baldwin, professor at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, has called on fellow researchers in the U.S., Europe and Japan to compile the document, which is expected to be released soon. It is unusual for a cross-border collection of think tanks to release such recommendations just before the presidential inauguration.
